Enjoyable break

Posted Oct 27, 2017
Pros: Friendly staff and it’s central location.
Cons: ? For me at times the stairs were a little tough as I’m an asthma sufferer. Maybe install a life?
Location: Visit the castle with its stunning views, an award winning chip shop just steps away and of course the gorgeous Cadwalladers Ice Cream cafe.
Set in the beautiful seaside town of Criccieth this hotel afforded beautiful views of the sea and the historic castle.

Used to provide single accommodation .

Posted Aug 24, 2017
Pros: everything
Cons: option of sheets and blanket, to duvet.
Location: Criccieth has wonderful sea and castle views and walks. Goof provision of cafes and restaurant for all tastes.
Required single room in order to play golf the following morning at Pwlhelli. Small single room with en-suite provided with view directly over the castle. Free parking available on road opposite the hotel, in view of the room. Cooked breakfast available at 8. 30 am allowed me time to travel the 20 minute journey to Pwlhelli Golf Course, in order to be on the tee at 10 am. Good accommodation, Comfortable bed. Dispensed with the duvet, as too warm. Watched World Athetics on small wall tv. after walking Criccieth promenade in the evening.

Family room with a view of the castle

Posted Aug 19, 2017
A clean, tidy family room with plenty of guest facilities. Each bed had its own wn towels and toiletries and there was a well stocked hot drink tray. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice and top ups of tea and toast offered in the lovely dining room. We will be back!

Grumpy Marine Hotel

Posted Aug 10, 2017 on Hotels
Room was large, but worn and old, yet it was a suite though. Their in-room literature stated guests could get drinks after the bar was closed, just had to ask. Since we got in late with nowhere open to eat, decided to indulge just to put something in my stomach. While the owner complied with a beer, made to feel like she was being put out, even though the owner (presumed) were having a beer with to others. Yet, they wouldn't take credit card for one beer because I had run out of pounds. We missed the breakfast that was included because we overslept. Understandable, but then contacted the same owner insisted on the 3 pounds from the beer the night before. So, I had to drive around all over town looking for somewhere to exchange cash. Ridiculous. While I understand this hotel is probably their livelihood, they weren't helpful in making it easy, nor did we feel like we were welcomed. The owner is very grumpy and should sell the hotel and retire. Ironically, when I was looking to exchange money to pay for the beer, I engaged a retailer in a discussion about the reason for quickly needing money. The retailer asked where I was staying, her response was...There much better hotels to stay at in town than there.

Weekend with our Grandchildren

Posted Jul 7, 2017
Pros: Excellent breakfast. Friendly hosts. Fabulous location. Car parking just across the road.
Cons: Needs some modernisation.
Location: Fabulous beach. Castle within walking distance. The best Ice Cream shop ever a short walk down the road. Lovely walks along the promenade.
We chose this particular hotel as it was very close to the beach and the castle. The hosts were very welcoming although the hotel itself was quite dated. We were put into a family room at the top of the hotel that had a double bed, a single bed and bunk beds (which worked out well for us), although the bunk bed creaked a lot when our Grandaughter was on the top bunk. I can say though that the breakfast was fabulous, a great variety of food and an excellent cooked breakfast (set us up for the day!!).

Easy access to town and hiking

Posted May 19, 2017
Pros: Location. Exceptionally helpful staff
Cons: Plumbing and mattresses
Location: Easy walk around town
One room was OK; the other had problems with the shower. Mattresses were thin and tired. Two hotel meals were delicious; the other two were just OK.There is a fantastic, local fish-&-chip restaurant very close; and an ice cream shop. Good location for hiking around town and to Welsh castle.

Nice hotel with close, available free parking

Posted May 12, 2017
Pros: Good central location......I already mentioned the handy parking available which is hard to find in these small towns.
Cons: Some maintenance of the old building could be improved....but that's always a given when you're dealing with old (but charming) structures.
Location: It you enjoy Welsh outdoor activities, they have it all here and nearby.
As we say here in America, this place gives a lot of bang for the buck. Delightful, accommodating staff with enjoyable British humor. They know the area and give helpful tips to the entire Snowdonia region to clueless visitors from abroad. We had a great time here and they helped make it happen. Thanks!
